Hello there!!! Today I am again participating in a blog hop to bring you lots of ideas from around the world!! Believe me you will get tons and tons of inspiration when you hop with us and visit all blogs from my fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators!
I have no doubts that you will find lots and lots of inspiration and after visiting all the blogs you will want to go to your craft room and case some of the ideas from these blogs!
Now, as you can imagine, I have been saying a lot on my videos how much I love the Peaceful Poppies Suite from Stampin’ Up! and I have not been able to stop creating cards with this suite, so today, I am going to share another project using the Peaceful Poppies Suite.
Peaceful Poppies Suite from Stampin’ Up!
If you are like me, I know that you will love all the elements from this suite! I am particularly drawn to the designer series paper in this collection, because the colors are just so bright that makes me happy!!!
All the designs from the Peaceful Poppies designer series paper are just perfect for stand alone cards, meaning you don’t need much to make beautiful cards! You can see it today with my easy to follow design.
If you are up to it, let’s play and share some of your creations on the comments!! I know you will love all the cards you make with sketch/layout!
Information about this card
Anyway, back to the card project I am sharing today. I used both of the stamp sets included in the Peaceful Poppies suite, which are the Painted Poppies and the Peaceful Moments.
I love that one of the sets is sentiments only and the other is poppies images! this really helps so much with the designing of the card, as everything coordinates nicely!
As far as colors being used, I used the Blackberry Bliss for the card base, and Old Olive for the mat, as both colors were included in the DSP color palette. I don’t you if you know that but that is my biggest secret when it comes to color coordination.. I always look in the back of the paper pack to get colors that can go together. After all if these are great on the design of the sheet, it will as well on a card!
Now as far as the sentiment, I die cut it with the brand new Stitched So Sweetly dies! which are fantastic!! seriously! they have some many images for labels plus the cute set of scallop rectangles that are so in trend!
For the stamping, I stamped off the poppy image with Gray Granite in a scratch paper and then stamped (without re-inking) onto the whisper white label, and then I stamped the sentiment with Rich Razzleberry.
And to embellish this card I added a little zigzag with the Poppy Parade Textured Weave Ribbon, it adds somethings and pulls all colors together, don’t you think?
Step-by-Step video tutorial
As usual here is a video tutorial in case you want to see step-by-step instructions, I go over measurements for all the pieces of the card.
